This was conceived and brought to life precisely on this principle by AworkDesign Studio – an open and versatile interior that caters to the needs of an urban family with kids. It is hardwood that shapes the interior of this serene setting where open living spaces can also be turned into ingenious and fun play zones with ease.
Working within constraints of rigid bushfire safety norms along with the very specific demands of the clients Field Office Architecture managed to craft a masterpiece on the side of Mount Macedon! Dubbed this unique and striking contemporary home combines smart architecture with eco-sensitive design to fashion a living environment that is both relaxing and captivating. To minimize impact on the lot and to give those inside a wonderful view of the bushland and beyond the residence sits partially on stilts and has a cantilevered façade.
Large oversized pendants above the dining table give a dash of industrial vibe to the dining area with empty corners being turned into the kids’ playarea with the simple use of a teepee. Comfortable bedrooms with attached bathrooms and ample closet room complete a stylish home that easily adapts to the various needs of its denizens.
A blend of open and private spaces coupled with a combination of materials and textures the in Australia is all about combining contrasts. Nestled on a lot that shares its boundaries with nearly a dozen other homes this stylish Aussie residence was designed by Jackson Clements Burrows to offer a balance between complete privacy and smart outdoor living spaces depending on the time of the day and the purpose of the room.
It is not just the flooring but also the shelves usher in the charm of wood indoors with a sleek staircase in wood and glass connecting the different levels on the home. A series of beautiful pendant lights and understated contemporary décor complete a home that somehow feels like a bit of downtown San Francisco transported to the heart of Perth!
Use of large dark windows with dark metallic frame gives the Aussie residence a subtle industrial vibe; an idea that is enhanced by the occasional presence of the exposed brick wall. But still the interior feels strictly contemporary (with a fun twist) and the kitchen and dining space on the lower level continue this theme.
It is Corten steel that gives this Aussie home its exceptional appeal as it adds both color and textural beauty to the structure. The custom corten panels were designed by the architects to improve the fire safety of the house and to shield it from the harsher elements of the bushland.
